Topic areas


There will be a Presidential Address by Brian Scholl, and an invited session with the winner of the 2012 Stanton Prize (TBA). Invited Speakers and Symposiasts for the 2012 meeting include: Michael Bishop, Matthew Botvinick, Tamar Gendler, Alvin Goldman, Terry Horgan, Hugo Mercier, and Daphna Shohamy.

Symposia topics will include: Rationality and Epistemology, and Models of Automatic and Controlled Cognition.

Submissions should be tailored to one of the following three presentation types:

  1. 40 Minute Contributed Sessions with Commentators:  Suitable for longer papers featuring empirical research or sustained arguments on complex issues. Philosophical/theoretical papers must not exceed a length of 3,500 words and should be accompanied by an abstract (of less than 300 words).  Psychological/empirical submissions may be made in the form of abstracts of 1000 words. 
  2. 15 Minute "Cutting Edge" Research Presentations: Suitable for brief presentations of exciting new empirical research or works in progress. For this category, an abstract of not more than 1,500 words should be submitted.
  3. Poster only presentations: Best for those who prefer the poster presentation format, and can communicate the substance and significance of their work in a short abstract. For this category, an abstract of not more than 750 words should be submitted.

Submssions in the first two categories that are not accepted for oral presentation will automatically be considered for presentation as posters, unless the author stipulates otherwise.

Papers and abstracts must be written in a format appropriate for anonymous review and employ gender-neutral language. Individual authors may submit only one paper or abstract as first author, though they may be co-authors on other submissions.

Please submit your paper or abstract via EasyChair:

Submissions must be received by January 22, 2012.  All submissions will be made using our online submission system, which will open December 1, 2011.  Check here for details:
